LOS ANGELES (AP) - A.J. Ellis lined an RBI single over a rawn-in infield in the 11th inning after Matt Kemp doubled home the tying run in the ninth, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers record
their biggest comeback win of the season in a 7-6 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.
George Sherrill (2-2) relieved demoted Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton with the bases loaded and two out in the 11th, and struck out NL batting leader Carlos Gonzalez.
The Dodgers got a break in the bottom half when Rafael Furcal was ruled safe at first by umpire Jim Reynolds on a potential double-play grounder to second base. Kemp's single against Manny Delcarmen (0-2) sent Furcal to third, and Andre Ethier was intentionally walked before Ellis ended the game.
The Rockies fall 1-1/2 games back of NL West-leading San Francisco and
3-1/2 back of Atlanta in the wild card.
